Author Appreciation Day 22: The Vibrant Veronica Roth

Today we are showing our undying love for Veronica Roth, the author of Divergent; I don't know about you guys but that book is one of my favorites and I really cannot wait for Insurgent. Tris and Four are some of my favorite literary characters ever.

I was actually at talking to the librarian at my local library about Hunger Games (can't WAIT for Friday-and wait til you see Lana's post!) and she recommended Divergent to me. I put my name on an insanely long waiting list and forgot about it. When I got the notification it had come in, I picked it up, not realizing I was about to read one of my very favorite books EVER. That's really hard for me to say, guys, just fyi..anyway, I read it in a day. And I immediately wanted MORE. I loved Tris; her bravery and strength; and the love story between she and Four was just so intense and not filled with the normal teen romance drama you see in the young adult genre. I was impressed, to say the least.

Pre-Order on Amazon.com now!

One choice can transform you—or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves—and herself—while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable—and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.

New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth's much-anticipated second book of the dystopian Divergent series is another intoxicating thrill ride of a story, rich with hallmark twists, heartbreaks, romance, and powerful insights about human nature. (Amazon.com)
